Re: The Last Movie You Watched Thread
This fulfills my love for many things: director idiosyncrasies everywhere, secret rich societies that worship Satan/have orgies in the name of power, & neo-noir rabbit hole pursuits. Polanski packs all of this in here with some kind of kooky energy, there's a dryness to the film that's oodles of fun as Depp is a moral-free rare book swindler getting mixed up in Devilish darkness. This is released the same year as Eyes Wide Shut
too, which makes this like it's jaunty relative that puts forth more of an ironic stamp & fantasy next to Kubrick's evil erotic conspiracy classic. So hell yeah - literally - I'm all about getting lost in this thick atmosphere. The years have been good to this.
You suck the blood of the afflicted.Those lacking imagination take refuge in reality.
